Manchester United banned reporters from Erik ten Hag’s press conference

According to a statement, United has barred media from writing pieces without first notifying the club.

Manchester United‘s situation is dire. The team is significantly underperforming, with several players out due to injury, numerous players want to leave the club, and its supporters protesting every other week as their beloved ‘Theatre of Dreams’ fails. In an unexpected turn of events, their manager, Erik ten Hag, and the club have barred many media outlets from attending the pre-match news conference.

Sky Sports, the Manchester Evening News, The Mirror, and ESPN have all been barred from reporting. It is unclear if the prohibition is temporary or permanent, but only time will tell. According to a club statement, these journalists have been barred from writing unfavourable reports about the club.

They said that it was not because of the negative reports, but because they were published without their permission. Today, we are taking action against various news organisations. Not for publishing things we don’t agree with, but for doing so without first contacting us and giving us the opportunity to respond, dispute, or contextualise.

Erik ten Hag agreed with the decision, noting that before releasing anything behind the club’s back, press outlets should notify the club beforehand. He answered questions on United’s recent results, his plans, and his relationship with his players at the news conference.

On December 5th, Sky Sports Chief Reporter Kaveh Solhekol released a story claiming that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag had lost more than half of his dressing room. Many reports claim that has occurred, with his handling of forward Jadon Sancho playing a significant role.

The dressing room is dissatisfied with several of the Dutch manager’s attributes, and many are perplexed by the scenario. Many players are dissatisfied with the team’s playing style, training techniques, and man-management.

Ten Hag stated during the press conference that he and the players had no concerns. He went on to say that the players were pleased with the manner they were playing: proactive, energetic, and bold.
